  • Our longtime client Lionsgate has completed the move to our new infrastructure, ensuring all current updates and fixes are being served to its platform. This means that all our clients are running off a solidified core platform in order to ensure stability and uniformity.
  • Our video conferencing feature is at a proof-of-concept stage and can be demonstrated on request. Besides multi-particpant video conferencing using only a web browser, this offers multi-bitrate video streaming directly off our tried and trusted streaming infrastructure, delivering the best possible video quality to all viewers.
  • Dedicated microsites, e.g. for specific events or titles, can be set up in MediaStore’s client facing site on request. Designs can either be supplied to us or concepted in cooperation with our design partners. In principle, each microsite’s design and functionality can accommodate any scope – please contact us in case you are interested.

  • On the ORF-Enterprise Content Sales platform, we provided custom powers allowing Sales Agents, who exclusively use the client-facing site for their activities, to download certain asset types which are not available for client download.
  • We are in the process of developing video playback for assets with multiple audio tracks. This will simplify the review process e.g. for master-quality assets contaning multiple mixes and languages, which may easily comprise more than 20 individual tracks.

  • Flexible setup of user role definitions has received an upgrade, allowing you to restrict a group of users to using no more than the set of functionality they require. Case in point is the Asset Vendor role, which allows external vendors to upload e.g. video assets – these are then flagged for review and can be made available within the general pool of assets after explicit approval.
  • A proof of concept for clipping of video assets was developed. Once completed, this will provide the possibility, within an asset self-service context, of allowing clients to set their own in and out points, ordering a clipped asset and receiving the custom asset automatically as a download.
